14a^3- 3/a^2=426 [ I'll use "x" instead of "a" ]

14^x^3 -3/x^2 - 426 = 0 multiply through by x^2

14x^5 - 3 - 426x^2 = 0

14x^5 - 426x^2 - 3 = 0

This does not have an algebraic solution, DP [ or, at least, I don't think that it does ]

There is only one real root at x = a ≈ 3.12

There are also 4 complex roots

Here is the graph and solution found by WolframAlpha :

16/n^2 * 2.352 = 425.32

Divide both sides by 2.352

16/n^2 = 425.32 / 2.352 and we can write

n^2 /16 = 2.352 / 425.32 multiply both sides by 16

n^2 = 16*2.352 / 425.32 take both roots

n = ±√ [ 16* 2.352 / 425.32] ≈ ± 0.297
